Round 7

Fury remains in control for the opening half of the seventh, but superior output from Usyk as he continues to try and find a way to work his way inside. Usyk lands a very hard left with Fury cornered near the end of the round, but Fury throws back immediately and with flair. It was just enough to nick a close round for the Ukrainian. Notably, Usyk has all but given up his work to the body.

Guardian’s unofficial score: Fury 9-10 Usyk (Fury 67-66 Usyk)

Round 8

Usyk lands a crunching right hand upstairs and Fury wipes his nose. The Ukrainian is back in this! He’s battering Fury, rallying back to dominate the exchanges. Usyk lands a massive right hand that appears to have damaged Fury’s right eye, opening a cut. Fury bleeding! Usyk is digging in like the great fighters do! Fury’s body language not great. A classic in the offing with four scheduled rounds to go.

Fury down in round nine!

Round 9

The blood is bothering Fury. Usyk has found purchase with the overhand left, a punch we haven’t seen much from him tonight. Fury has been rattled! Usyk unloads with a barrage of shots with Fury trapped along the ropes and Fury is in serious trouble! He’s stumbling all over the ring! The referee might stop it! We’ve never seen him hurt this badly! He stumbles and falls back into the corner and the referee calls it a knockdown! He’s down for the eighth time in his career! Makes it to his feet but he’s been saved by the bell!

Guardian’s unofficial score: Fury 8-10 Usyk (Fury 84-86 Usyk)

Round 10

Fury has 60 seconds to recover from that battering. Can he survive this round? Fury could have easily been stopped that last round, but the third man Nelson did well to measure the occasion of the moment. Usyk is not pressing the issue, giving Fury precious space to recover. Usyk scoring with sparing overhand lefts, consistently. Usyk did enough there to win the round on activity, but it might go down as a fatal mistake after he gave Fury three minutes to recover from the brink of defeat.

Round 11

Usyk continues to land the cleaner, more effective shots. Both fighters clearly gassed with three minutes to go. Can the former cruiserweight champion close the show to hand Fury the first defeat of his professional career? The Gypsy King has rebounded admirably from the ninth-round abyss, but he almost definitely needs a knockout to keep his belts.

Round 12

Fury needs to step to Usyk in this final round and he’s not doing it. Usyk is coming forward in the opening half of this final round, landing one left hand after another, putting a stamp on a performance for the ages. An exhiliaring performance between the two best heavyweights on the planet. We’ll wait for the official cards.

Tyson Fury is a bullshit artist -

A few days ago he said he was the best boxer in human history.     Grin

Highlights here:



Round 9 was the best – the ref called for an 8 count 1 second before Tyson Fury was about to get the knockout punch.
Saved by the ref and the bell.

Full fight here:



Now – think back to Ali, Frazier, Foreman or Mike Tyson in their primes.
Would Tyson Fury have had a chance to win?
I reckon Big George Foreman would have knocked him out in 2 rounds -  LOL.

Now - the bad side of boxing:

Quarry was tough and had some skills but
he was a few notches down from the elite heavyweights of those days.
He was a human punching bag who took way too many shots to the head.
He died      January 3, 1999 (aged 53)
